On an Android phone open the System Settings by using the menu button on your phone from the home screen, or by launching the Settings app from the app drawer.
In the settings window scroll down to Personal >> Location access and tap it.
Now there are a few choices:
- Turn location access off completely.
- Unfortunately this disables GPS and navigation, so this won’t work for most people.
- Disable Google’s location service, but keep GPS enabled
- Disable GPS but keep Google’s location service on (Why would you do this!!??)
If you toggle “Access to my location” off and then back on, you’ll be presented with a Location consent window. This location consent option isn’t anything special. It turns Wi-Fi & Mobile network location feature on or off. Location consent and Wi-FI & mobile network location are the same thing.
That covers Google Android location tracking feature. I’d be curious to hear what some of you groovyReaders think about this type of thing. Do you care Google knows more and more about you or have you come to grips with that’s just the world we live in.?.?
